Madame Blossom's Book of Poems

Sometimes I feel like I'm in the rapid waters of worldly affairs, earnestly trying to hang on to the branches of Iman. 

I would start doing something, with the ultimate aim to please Allah SWT. but along the way, sometimes that aim is blurred.  I must rub my eyes again, and re focus. 

Must aim to do it all, with Allah as the ultimate goal. 

Ya Allah, I NEED your constant guidance.

My life right now, is a series of unrelated events and feelings stitched together so haphazardly.

Gratitude, sadness, happiness, contentment, desire, frustrations, detemination.

Ya Allah, let me pass these many forms of tests that I'm being put through.

Alhamdulillah, life is beautiful.

Raping the Earth

"the sun, the moon and the stars would have disappeared long ago... had they happen to be within the reach of predatory human hands." - Havelock Ellis.

"Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said: "Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood?- whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not." The Quran 2:30 (Yusuf Ali)
Only Allah knows the ultimate aim and destination for us - the vicegerent going through Allah's tests. Will we be the one who participates to create mischief? Or will we be the minority who fights for what is good and true?

Perhaps that's why, so far, even though human have managed to break through earth atmosphere, we can only reach the moon. Perhaps when man can do more in the universe, if God gives the authority - it will be to create a reason for the end of our world.

"O ye assembly of Jinns and men! If it be ye can pass beyond the zones of the heavens and the earth, pass ye! not without authority shall ye be able to pass!" - The Quran, 55:33 (Yusuf Ali)

Jim Richardson on Travel Photography -- National Geographic

Oh, I love the advice given on travel photography.
No I'm not doing travel photography. I only dream I may.
Just love looking at those pictures that reminds me of how great and intricate Allah's creations are. Subhanallah.
